Here’s a new twist on an old classic, The 12 Days of Christmas that’s designed to help sellers improve sales and close a big deal before year end. This new and improved, sales version is called The 12 Days of Selling. Follow the step each day (starting today) and great things will happen. Feel free to hum along as you read:)
On the 1st day of selling you should, select 5 new business prospects.
On the 2nd day of selling you should, develop a trusted and valued plan for each prospect.
On the 3rd day of selling you should develop, a valid business reason for each prospect.
On the 4th day of selling you should, send your personal marketing resume to each prospect.
On the 5th day of selling you should, send an introduction email to each prospect (use your VBR).
On the 6th day of selling you should, call each prospect and set a needs analysis appointment.
On the 7th day of selling you should, send follow up emails to the prospects you did not connect with.
On the 8th day of selling you should, prepare for the needs analysis meetings.
On the 9th day of selling you should, make another round of phone calls to those you could not reach earlier.
On the 10th day of selling you should, conduct some needs analysis meetings.
On the 12th day of selling you should, present some no-surprise proposals and close at least one deal!
It’s never too early to get in the holiday spirit—it’s never too late to close a big deal and start improving sales performance!
